This study investigates the electrical properties of viologen derivatives at a nanoscale and analyzes it using a scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) in order to apply viologen molecules that represent a function in electron transfer mediators as a molecular electronic device. In addition, we measure conformational changes in the viologen molecular(More)
Demand on the practical synthetic approach to the high performance electrocatalyst is rapidly increasing for fuel cell commercialization. Here we present a synthesis of highly durable and active intermetallic ordered face-centered tetragonal (fct)-PtFe nanoparticles (NPs) coated with a "dual purpose" N-doped carbon shell. Ordered fct-PtFe NPs with the size(More)
In this paper, we investigate the performance of IEEE802.16d random access protocol based on orthogonal codedivision-multiple-access and frequency-division-multiple-access in time division duplexing mode using equilibrium point analysis. The random access protocol of IEEE802.16d is similar to demand-assigned multiple access with piggyback, in which(More)
Mesoporous hybrid network of reduced graphene oxide (rG-O) and layered MnO(2) nanosheets could act as an efficient immobilization matrix for improving the electrochemical activity of layered double hydroxide (LDH). The control of MnO(2) /rG-O ratio is crucial in optimizing the porous structure and electrical conductivity of the resulting hybrid structure.(More)
The best electrode performance of metal oxide-graphene nanocomposite material for lithium secondary batteries can be achieved by using the colloidal mixture of layered CoO2 and graphene nanosheets as a precursor. The intervention of layered CoO2 nanosheets in-between graphene nanosheets is fairly effective in optimizing the pore and composite structures of(More)
This paper reports the synthesis and characterization of silver-cobalt (AgCo) bimetallic composite nanotubes. Cobalt oxide (Co3O4) nanotubes were fabricated by electrospinning and subsequent calcination in air and then reduced to cobalt (Co) metal nanotubes via further calcination under a H2/Ar atmosphere. As-prepared Co nanotubes were then employed as(More)
Remarkable improvement in electrode performance of Mn3O4-graphene nanocomposites for lithium ion batteries can be obtained by incorporation of a small amount of exfoliated layered MnO2 or RuO2 nanosheets. The metal oxide nanosheet-incorporated Mn3O4-reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanocomposites are synthesized via growth of Mn3O4 nanocrystals in the(More)
The formation and surface structure of pentafluorobenzenethiol (PFBT) self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on Au(111) formed under various experimental conditions were examined by means of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Although it is well known that PFBT molecules on metal surfaces do not form ordered SAMs, we clearly revealed for the first time that the(More)
In comparison with the hybridization with 0D TiO2 nanoparticle, 2D layered TiO2 nanosheets are much more effective in the improvement of the photocatalytic activity and photostability of semiconducting compounds. The 2D TiO2-Ag3PO4 nanohybrid described in this paper shows a greater decrease in the electron-hole recombination upon hybridization and a(More)
We observe the modified surface states of an epitaxial thin film of a homologous series of (Bi2)m(Bi2Se3)n, as a topological insulator (TI), by angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy measurements. A thin film with m : n  =  1 : 3 (Bi8Se9) has been grown with Bi2 bilayers embedded every other three quintuple layers (QLs) of Bi2Se3. Despite the reduced(More)
